‘I’m black, so you don’t have to be,’ Colin Grant’s Uncle Castus told him.
For Colin, born in Britain to Jamaican parents, things were supposed to be different.
If he worked hard his race would become invisible.
The reality turned out to be very different.
This unforgettable memoir is told through a series of intimate, intergenerational family portraits.
Each life informs Grant’s own sense of his identity and collectively these stories build into a poignant testimony of the black British experience.
